Generator Rex

Watching “Generator Rex” brought a lot of old fond memories back. This show surrounds a teenage boy named Rex who has the power to grow and control machines to defeat EVOs. EVOs are humans that get turned into evil looking monsters because of an incident that happened 5 years ago. Five years ago, a group of scientists wanted to help humanity combat injuries and diseases by creating little machines called “Nanites”. Which I think was a good idea if the rich people funding the project didn’t mess up completely. They caused a huge explosion that not only taking out a lot of people, but the Nanites that they created spread across the globe and infected every living thing.

The Nanites end up mutating the eco system and the very people themselves turning them into monsters. What’s worse is that their seems to no cure for the never ending plague…….until now. Rex is the only person with the power to fight and cure EVOs. Their was a lot of mystery around Rex. He didn’t know his last name, where he came from, if he had any family or why he has these powers in the first place. But, don’t worry as you watch you’ll find they will give us hints and flashbacks to help us with finding the answers. The mystery thickens when Van Kleiss, Rex’s arch nemesis, appears. He appears to know more about Rex and who he is than anyone else it seems, but it doesn’t look like he’ll be revealing anything to us anytime soon.

If I had to choose my favorite episodes from this series, it would be “Night Falls” and the Ben/Generator Rex crossover. I liked the “Night Falls “episode they created werewolf type EVO that I liked plus another showdown between Rex and Hunter Cain. I also liked when they put Ben 10 into the mix for two episodes and mess with Rex a little. I don’t think Rex could process what Ben knew and what he could do all that well, but they proved to be a good team. I hope they get to work together again before the season ends.

Generator Rex is really funny to watch. I love watching Rex and his partner Bobo fight EVOs and pull pranks on everyone that they meet. The show will keep you entertained as we try to figure out Rex’s past and what it has to do with him now.

Yobi, The Five Tailed Fox

This animation movie is about a young girl named Yobi. Well, no one knows how old she really is because she’s actually a fox that possesses magical powers. What she likes doing the most is turning herself into a ten year old girl.

For some reason, an alien race of furry aliens crash land on Earth and have been trying since then to go back to their planet. They are so weird and one of them likes repeating what the other one says. Then, one day one of them that’s considered a ‘troublemaker’ within the group gets yelled at forcing him to leave, which then leads to him getting himself captured by the kids at a nearby school. The school seems to be a school for the oddballs or outcasts of society. It did hint that some of these kids have some issues that need to be resolved.

The rest of the aliens feeling bad for him want to try to rescue him, so they ask Yobi to infiltrate the school and get their friend back. That is where the story begins. This movie absolutely cute and heart warming. You know that Yobi wants to be human, but she’s kind hearted enough to not take extreme or evil measures to get it. Unlike Mr.Shadow, who I had thought was a good guy at first when I saw him helping her get away from the hunter several times.

My favorite characters would have to be Yobi, Jung Jong-ee and Geum-ee. Jong-ee was this cute little girl who didn’t speak and for some strange reason, she always had to be hugging something. First, it was her oversized teddy bear and then she turned her attention to the alien. Geum-ee was this nice guy who wanted to be a comedian and liked spending time with Yobi. I liked watching the puppy love develop between the two, even though, Yobi had no clue that she was in love in the first place.

This movie is filled with adventure, mystery, magic and a glimpse of the supernatural world. I loved this movie and I can’t wait to see more. I really think that watching Yobi, The Five Tailed Fox is a total must see!

Tenchi Muyo

I have to say that this anime is hilarious as hell. It’s about a boy who ends up releasing a demon named Ryoko out of a cave that is near his family’s shrine. When you hear something like that your probably thinking this one of those feudal era type animes where theirs demons, spirits and a whole lot of killing going on. Your close, but no dice.

Its setting is actually in modern-day Japan, but our hero,Tenchi, in this story lives deep in the woods with his grandfather in the family shrine. Like all teenage boys who do nothing, but do chores, train and go to school wonders why he has to do all this and never get to have any fun like a normal boy his age does. Later, we learn that their was a reason for all of it. Tenchi could have one day been able to live as a normal person if he didn’t wake Ryoko up who, immediately, hunted him down to kill him. Later, though she seems to calm down a bit and becomes friends with Tenchi and makes herself quite comfortable at his house.

Soon, we learn that this anime is going to give us a sci-fi harem twist when Princess Ayeka arrives to find her brother and kill Ryoko. She’s an alien princess who came to planet earth and she says she has been looking for her brother for 700 years. 700 years?! Now you would think that both she and her brother wouldbe dead, but I think her people either age really, really slowly or they like freezing themselves so much. In the beginning, you see Ayeka come out of freezing herself.

After, Ayeka comes in so does Sasami, Washu and Mihoshi. Every girl with him fall in love with him even Ryoko who has daily showdowns with Ayeka. Sasami looks to be the only one who doesn’t like Tenchi like that. For me, I think he’ll, eventually, go for Ryoko because she doesn’t like to show it, but her feelings for Tenchi are really deep. He just can’t get over her rough and wild personality.

I suggest everyone watches it. Its funny, romantic, mysterious and filled with plenty of action. There are a lot of other seasons and movies that go along with this and I’m sure I will be able to talk about these in the future. This a really enjoyable show and I can’t wait to see more.

Mahouka Koukou No Rettousei

This story revolves around two twins named Tatsuya and Miyuki. They both attend the same elite magical school and because they are twins you would think they would end up in the same class right. Wrong. In this school there are blooms and there are weeds. Blooms are the students that the academy think have a future at all. They get provided with all the love and affection that the school can offer in hopes that when they graduate that they will use their talents and new skills in the military to help protect their country.

On the other hand, weeds are the students that the school doesn’t think have that much talent and won’t get far in life as a magician. Of course, the school board isn’t going to tell you that though and just flat out reject them. Instead, they let them attend the school and put them on a rank lower than the students with promise. The reason they let these kids in the school at all is because if a student from the blooms dies, gets into an accident or drops out for any reason they can pull a random student from the lower rank classes and turn it into a bloom. Which is why I think they call them weeds.

What’s even more messed up about this is that students classified as weeds don’t get the some kind of education and affection that the bloom students get. Blooms would get one on one training and coaching, counseling, the best teachers and opportunities available. The weeds would get lucky to even see a teacher walk by and talk to them. They are taught by computers and programs already set up. They don’t get any kind of coaching and teacher instruction. Also, the blooms treat them like crap and even go as far as ask them why are they even in this school. Personally, I don’t know why either. Why would go to a school that designed to separate and alienate its students? Maybe it’s because its one of the best magical schools around? Or that they hope that one day they will become a bloom before they graduate? I really don’t know the reason. But,with a school like this expect a lot of conflict and awesome magical fights.

The reason why I even mentioned the weeds and the blooms was because our beloved twins are in different ranks. The smart and beautiful Miyuki was made into a bloom while her twin brother, Tatsuya, was made a weed. At first I thought that it was the ‘just because their alike on the outside doesn’t mean that their alike on the inside’ situation with the twins. But, later you find out that he got even a higher score than her in the paper tests and that he could seriously kick some ass. So, why was a he made a weed? Later, you will discover why, but like I always say I’m not going to be a spoiler for you. What I want you to do is get interested and read it for yourself. Unfortunately, though this story is yet to be completed, so if you don’t mind waiting for the next chapter then I suggest would get to reading.

What I liked most about this manga is the mystery and love surrounding these twins. These two are so lovey dovey that if you didn’t know that they were twins you would think that they were lovers. But, I think this manga is going to have a major twist like they aren’t really brother and sister or something like that. Even if they don’t I think Tatsuya is going to remain single for the rest of his life or have to fake his death to get into any kind of serious relationship. Everytime he even gets close to a girl and Miyuki sees or hears about she gets so mad that her emotions would trigger her ice powers. So, she would end up freezing anybody close to her. By the look on Tatsuya’s face, whenever, she is angry it’s mostly him who suffers her wrath.

Their background also interests me. It appears they have so much going on in their past that it makes me want to beg for a flashback in the next chapter. When they describe how differently their father treats them and how he mentions that he was experimented on makes want to no more about his history. Also, I know that most twins are close and all, but their relationship reminds me of a princess and a knight in love. Especially, when he says that he does everything for her sake. I wonder what will happen next to these two.
